To make them work better with a Mac, you can max out the Bluetooth quality
And then if you're using Tidal, click on output in bottom right hand corner, select the earphones and then enable 'Passthrough MQA'.

Then when you listen to 'master' tracks on Tidal, you get mindblowing quality from the buds.

Thanks for the tip!

My only issue with these is the Bluetooth dropouts that I had when wearing a series 2 Apple Watch, im hoping the series 5 works better, do you have any experience of this, is it just my pair?

I’ve tried 2 pairs of these headphones and had to return both due to dreadful Bluetooth performance, particularly where there are lots of other people using Bluetooth devices (e.g on a daily commute). Yes the sound quality is good but what’s the point if you have to put up with constant dropouts. Now use AirPods Pro which work fine with zero dropouts.
